$25 Target Gift Card Giveaway {Autism Awareness Giveaway Hop}

 Hosted by:

Heather @ Fire and Ice
Pixie @ Page Turners

April is Autism Awareness Month.  To help spread the word about Autism we are hosting a giveaway hop.

Each participating blog is hosting a giveaway.  You will find lots of variety among the prizes.  Some of the blogs are giving away prizes that relate to autism, other blogs are giving away gift cards or other prizes and posting information about autism to help make others aware.

To find out more about Autism you can visit Autism Speaks here. If you have a child that shows signs of Autism I urge you to have them evaluated by a qualified Doctor. The earlier they are evaluated the more help they can receive if they need it.

Over the last five years, scientists have identified a number of rare gene changes, or mutations, associated with autism. A small number of these are sufficient to cause autism by themselves. Most cases of autism, however, appear to be caused by a combination of autism risk genes and environmental factors influencing early brain development.”.
